Low Cost Counselling

Turning Point Therapy is able to offer low-cost counselling through our Interns who are professionally trained counsellors completing their training. They are usually with us for about 10 months and under the close supervision of Delyse Ledgard. As a result, the fee is significantly reduced to $45 per session.

We understand that many people are challenged financially, and we want to give as many people who need it access to counselling services.  We are happy to provide this service. No referral is necessary. Fill out the contact form and our admin will set up an appointment for you.

We have 2 locations.  Downtown Vancouver and North Delta serving the Fraser Valley Areas. We are offering in-person and video sessions. You will need access to high-speed internet and a private space to be online.

Counselling can offer you a space that is non-judgmental, compassionate and healing. Our Intern Counsellors are all professionally trained with different backgrounds, interests, and experiences. They all have training in being present to your concerns and guiding you towards your goals.

Therapeutic Approach

I believe that all individuals have the capacity for change when given the opportunity, tools, and guidance. My approach is collaborative, client-centered, and eclectic, drawing on cognitive, psychodynamic, and somatic approaches to therapy. As a counsellor, I focus on creating a safe space filled with respect, encouragement, and support. In this calming and reassuring environment, clients are invited to examine patterns, behaviours, responses, boundaries, and relationships, that they may want to alter, understand, or reflect upon. I am interested in working with adolescents and adults of all ages, and with a variety of concerns.

I welcome clients with diverse backgrounds and needs and provide counselling in English and Russian.

Therapeutic Approach

I believe that a great deal of change can happen when we are able to have compassion and care for ourselves. Through a sense of connection with our bodies and the sensations that live there, and the ability to both understand how and why we become threatened. We can then notice and relax into the safety that exists in the present moment.

These things are all skills that can be learned and developed with practice. It’s never too late to claim these as your own.
